Christmas, for some people, is the most important holiday of the year. But it is not everyone’s holiday. So how can you address Christmas in your program in a way that is supportive and fair to all?
First, find out how families celebrate a December holiday – whether it is Hanukkah, Kwanza, Christmas, or other versions of the holidays. Use that information to plan activities that help children to understand that families are different and each family celebrates in its own way. Be sensitive to children who celebrate differently than the majority of the children.
